Versions that Squeeze will ship:
KDE SC 4.4.5 with kdepim 4.4.7
Qt 4.6.3

Stuff we have to write about from the top of my head:
- KDE 3 is dead, but kdelibs and some KDE 3 apps are still in the archive.
- Also Qt 3 is around and some apps using it.
- kdelibs from KDE 3 and Qt 3 won't be in the next Debian release.
- changes in the metapackages, plasma-desktop vs plasma-netbook
- kaboom, migrating your settings from KDE 3 to KDE 4:

Let's wait a couple of days in case something important is missing
and I will write the final text.
